Description from the owner
PLOCKTON in the Western Highlands of Scotland must be the most scenic village in Scotland, and it is a paradise for painters, photographers, hillwalkers, sailors and many others! It is situated in a sheltered corner on the shore of Loch Carron â so sheltered in fact, that visitors are astonished to see palm trees growing in the gardens there! Loch Carron is a sea loch (fjiord) which opens onto the Isle of Skyeâs âInner Soundâ.

Plockton, Scottish Highlands & Islands, Scotland
Additional Location Information
As noted above, PLOCKTON in the Western Highlands of Scotland must be the most scenic village in Scotland, and is a paradise for painters, photographers, hillwalkers, sailors and many others! It is situated in a sheltered corner on the shore of Loch Carron â so sheltered in fact, that visitors are astonished to see palm trees growing in the gardens there! Loch Carron is a sea loch (fjiord) which opens onto the Isle of Skyeâs âInner Soundâ.
Drumbeg, 19 Harbour Street, is one of the original village houses built in 1860s. It is on the main street in the centre of the village with spectacular views across Loch Carron to Duncraig Castle and the awesome âCragsâ above. The name Plockton comes from the Gaelic word âPlocâ meaning a promontory and âtonâ â a small population centre. Plocktonâs population is about 325 in the winter to about three times that in the summer.
Duncraig Castle is a young castle by Scottish standards â built in the 1860âs by one of the Mathieson family of the Hongkongâs shipping and trading firm Jardine Mathieson â where it had a historically had a significant role in the Far East opium trade! It was a âstately homeâ until WWII when it became a naval hospital, and thereafter for many years it was a domestic science college for west highland ladies. It is now a bed & breakfast facility.
Plockton is an excellent centre for exploring the Isle of Skye and the western highlands, from Knoydart to Torridon and Inverness to the outer islands. The local community is vibrant and energetic, and visitors will find truly warm west highland welcome awaiting them. The late July- early August Plockton Sailing Regatta ~ the âWhisky Olympicsâ brings Plockton sailors, aficionados and their families from all over the world.
